Another Chelonian Wiktory

Jeremiah Swakhammer the Eastern Box Turtle has eaten! Huzzah! This is a momentous occasion because wild-caught turtles are often so stressed by the switch to captivity that they refuse to eat. I left him a dozen crickets, a strawberry, and a blackberry and lo! The blackberry has been consumed. The strawberry remains unmolested which is odd as turtles are supposed to love red food but hey, I’ll take what I can get.

Tomorrow I shall perhaps try a bit of banana and an earthworm or two if I can remember to go to the local bait shop.
